Sweet Dreams With Dena Designs

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Dena Fishbein, a hugely talented artist and designer, when I wrote about her beautiful California home.  Her house is being featured in the upcoming issue of Romantic Country Magazine, and trust me, you won't want to miss seeing it!

Along with being an amazing award winning designer, author, and TV host, Dena is simply a wonderful person!  I knew right away after speaking to both Dena and her husband Danny, that everything they create is done with passion.  Whether they are scouring the flea markets in Paris together, or working on Dena's next design venture, the two of them are enjoying every minute of it.

One of Dena's latest projects is a line of beautiful bedding that will be available through Bed, Bath and Beyond stores this fall.  Thanks to Dena and her great team, I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at these wonderful collections and even had the opportunity to photograph them to share with all of you! 

True to her fun and whimsical romantic style, Dena has created three wonderful collections that will make any bed envious!  The first collection is known as the Wish Collection!

It is a gorgeous grouping of pillows done in a soft green and paired with crisp white details, all of which coordinate perfectly with the lovely floral quilt from the same Wish line.  

The quality of all three of Dena's collections is really amazing and the attention to detail is unsurpassed.  Each of the pillows in the Wish Collection is a unique play on the green and white color scheme, and I love how they compliment the quilt without everything being too matchy!

Wouldn't you love to dress up a bed with this very sweet collection, I know I would!

And I just love all of the feminine touches Dena has infused into each of her collections!  Just look at those darling ruffles and the appliques on the two pillows pictured above.  

Dena's next fabulous collection is the Cloud Collection.  This dreamy bedding is soft, simple, and oh so pretty!

It boasts shams, a quilt, and bolster pillows each adorned with delicate ruffles.

The Cloud Collection, along with all three of Dena's latest lines of bedding, is really perfect for someone of any age.  I can see this beautiful ruffled bedding on a toddler's bed, providing glamour to a teen's room, or adding sophistication and romance to any bedroom!

Just look at how pretty it looks with the turquoise walls in my own bedroom!!

The crisp white color, flirty ruffles, and covered button details on the bolster make me want to re-do my daughter's room in all white and buy this gorgeous bedding to be the icing on the cake!

Just in case you weren't having quite enough trouble deciding between the last two collections, take a look at the Moroccan Garden Collection!  This colorful bedding collection has something for everyone with it's bold colors and fun floral designs!

The moment I opened the boxes for the Moroccan Garden Collection I was in love!  Dena has paired stripes and florals to create a beautiful one of a kind collection that is colorful, fun, and just makes you want to smile!

The quilt has the perfect mix of vintage charm and lively rich color to make it my own personal favorite among her new collections, though I have to say that choosing just one collection to love is not an easy task!

And the details are what really set all of Dena's bedding apart from your average run of the mill bedding I see so much of these days.  Instead of boring, the Moroccan Garden collection is bold, beautiful and with its many colors, it would be at home in almost any bedroom!

Just look at the detail on this embroidered pillow...and you could easily use this with The Cloud Collection too.  I love the versatility of all of Dena's bedding and how you can mix and match among the three collections!

I also love this pillow that combines striped fabric, ribbon, and beautiful crewel work!

The Moroccan Garden collection will definitely be on my wish list when it comes out in just a few months...and I'm thinking that with three bedrooms and a son leaving for college this fall I might just have to buy all three of Dena's collections! ;-)

I would like to thank Dena, Alex, and Allison for helping me get this beautiful bedding so that I could share it with you.  And to the wonderful girls from The Vintage Source for letting me borrow one of their great quilt racks to use to display the Wish and Cloud Collections in some of the photographs.

And be sure to pick up a copy of Romantic Country Magazine this September to see Dena's gorgeous home!

  8. Oh my, these pillows are all gorgeous. Stunning. Such fabulous detail and designs.
    Thanks also for your sweet birthday wishes. I had a fabulous day. Hugs, Marty

  9. They are all beautiful, but the Moroccan ones are like a party!

  10. love them all i would hate to have to pick just 1

  11. These are all beautiful, light, airy and feminine and should sell like gangbusters! I would take any of of them, but really love the Wish line the best. Thanks for sharing!!


  12. Kat, what scrumptious bedding. I love the cloud collection the most. I will be looking for these when they hit the stores.

  13. That is just so beautiful.
    Yesterday I was out shopping in town for bedding. This is what I found
    One set of orange geometric
    One set of Lauren-ish plaid
    One set of Laura Ashley on sale/discontinued
    Set after set of brown, taupe, grey, lavender,beige stripe/geometric.
    I live in a metropolitan area of over 250,000 - and going online isn't a whole lot better unless orders from the US and is willing to deal with the customs, taxes, paperwork etc.
    Big *sigh* - that's why I drive down to Seattle every once in a while.

  14. Absolutely gorgeous. The colours and details are wonderful on all the pieces but I am so drawn to the Cloud collection.

  15. Bed bath and beyond....I'm going to remember this! I LOVE pillows and need some to jazz things up in my living room! These are gorgeous! ♥

  16. So I'm pretty much in love with this bedding collection! The designs are absolutely beautiful. I have always been a huge fan of Dena's and I'm always excited to see what she is creating next. I love everything she does. Can't wait until this hits stores it's going to look wonderful in my bedroom!

  17. Wow thats beautiful!! I love the cloud collection.

  18. Each one of them was my favorite right before you showed the next ones! Ooooh I could not decide, but I know the Cloud collection would easily go in a couple of my bedrooms! You must be having just the best time ever and it shows too, your styling with these collections is fabulous!! ~Lili

  19. Hi Kat, Wow, All three collections are beautiful. I would have a really hard time deciding which is my favorite.
    Hugs, Sherry

  20. OH Kat, these are REALLY wonderful, original collections...They remind me of a fresh, modern spin on old fashioned linens! I can't wait to see them in person...I think I may be redecorating!

  21. Kat, I love those pillows! My favorite is the Cloud collection!! They are all so gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing!

  22. Oh my goodness, just when I thought it could not get any better you moved us along to the next collection. I want it all! These are so fresh, so beautiful...I am now plotting to include something from each of the collections in every bedroom in the house. Your styling and photography are really wonderful, too.


  23. Before I head to Bed Bath and Beyond, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your trip to your friend across the river! How fun. Her home, the scenery, was wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing your day with us! blessings, carrell

  24. That soft seafoam would go with everything in my house! I love this pretty.
